Valentine's Weekend

Well, we had quite the treat this last weekend. Grandma and Grandpa Finklea came to visit us!!!! They arrived on the 12th and were greeted at the front door with Payton, Jaxon and Ashton hiding behind the couch. They had been practicing jumping out and yelling surprise, but once Grandma and Grandpa walked through the door... it was a little daunting. But... at least they came out. The kids were so excited to see them, and loved them almost too much. The kids took them and showed them their rooms and were able to stay awake for a little while and visit. Saturday we took them to a Primary activity where they were able to meet some of the most special people in our lives. We later went to the Holler and celebrated little Kayli Hinckley's birthday. We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening with our friends in the Holler, and ended with our Valentine's dinner at our favorite local Mexican Restaurant Pelanchos. Sunday we took them to church, where we enjoyed showing them off to everyone. Sunday afternoon we went for a drive; took them to see the BIGGEST COW EVER, and we took them to the Pinnacle overlook, where we see Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. Even in the dead of Winter it is beautiful. Monday was a little more relaxed, with not much on our plate, but we couldn't let them come all the way over here and not take them to the local HOT SPOT. Wal-Mart!!!!! So we made a special trip to Wal-Mart where the three little squirts were spoiled by their Grandma and Grandpa with gifts. Our weekend was so fun, catching up, talking and especially for me and the kids... getting to know Grandma and Grandpa better. We loved having them here in our home, and hope they will come again. We Love You!!!!Here are the kids anxiously waiting for Grandma and Grandpa to arrive!
Valentine's Day Morning
Our Sunday afternoon drive to see the biggest cow, and pinnacle.
It was short lived... IT WAS FREEZING!!!
Grandma and Grandpa left, and the kids went out to play!
Let me add... the weather worked out conveniently because Payton didn't have to go to school the entire time Grandma and Grandpa Finklea were here!!!
